With the 2015 edition of the Tour de France having arrived in the mountains, we checked out a few of the climbing-specialist rides that are likely to crest the summits just a little sooner than the rest.

Included are the BMC Teammachine as ridden by Tejay van Garderen, Chris Froome's Pinarello Dogma F8 and the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX of Nairo Quintana.
